A Colorado man is facing felony charges after getting initially pulled over for a busted headlight.

On Monday morning, a Nebraska State Trooper stopped a vehicle for an equipment violation on Highway 385. While approaching the vehicle, the trooper detected a strong odor of marijuana. A search of the vehicle led to the discovery of numerous drugs and a defaced Smith and Wesson handgun.

The trooper arrested 29-year-old Christopher Boyd on the charges of possession of marijuana (more than one pound), possession of cocaine, possession of methamphetamine, and felon in possession of a firearm.

Boyd is being detained in Box Butte County jail.
